Charming East Austin bungalow with front and back gardens. The original part of the home was built in 1940, with a back extension added in 2016. The 1940s part of the home has original dark hardwood floors and the 2016 back addition has concrete floors. Old and new are blended seamlessly throughout the home. The home is wired for sound throughout (including the backyard, master bedroom, and master bath) and a phone can be connected to the sound system via bluetooth to play music. The front garden is manicured with hedges and roses. The back garden is wild and romantic -- a combination of rockscaping, rose bushes, butterfly garden, and other native Texas plants. The backyard is surrounded by mature trees and a fence covered in climbing jasmine, making the backyard feel completely private. The backyard has a long wooden table with bench seating that can comfortably seat 8-10 people. The backyard also has a side deck and grill. The side deck is accessible from the backdoor to the kitchen and sliding glass doors from the master bedroom and hallway into the back addition. The deck also has four deck chairs that fully recline for sunbathing. The house is equipped with a gourmet, chef's kitchen (four burner Viking range). The kitchen has black cabinetry, a farm house sink, gold finishes, metal and wooden countertops, and a shiplap backsplash. The kitchen is open to the small dining room (with a white round dining table with seating for four) and the formal living room. The living room has a large, gas fireplace that turns on via remote control. Opposite the living room is a den with a built-in bar, wine fridge, and bookcase, which is used to display a collection of vintage crystal glassware. There is also a TV in this room. The house has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, as well as a small office. The two guest rooms are located next to bathrooms, but the bathrooms are not attached. Guest room 1 is next to a bathroom with a standup shower, tiled in vintage white hexagon tile. The finishes -- like all the finishes in the house --- are gold. Guest room 2 is next to a bathroom with a shower/tub combination with the same white hexagon tile. The master bedroom looks out onto the back garden through sliding glass doors. There is an on-suite bathroom with a shower and freestanding bathtub. There is a marble, double sink. Again, everything has gold finishes. There is also a washer and dryer unit off the kitchen, next to the office. A site rep may be needed depending on length and type of event.

It starts at the airport when travelers are welcomed by live music and a dip in the Barton Springs punctuated with live music at a pecan grove comes highly recommended. Finding music for your wedding reception venue will be a breeze.

Pros and Cons of Wedding Receptions in Austin

Every city has wonderful things about it. Take a look at the pros and cons of having your wedding reception in Austin.

Advantages

  • Weather
    Austin experiences about 300 days of sunshine making it the ideal destination for outdoor gatherings, weddings included. The weather supports activities like taking a dip in the Lady Bird Lake located in South Congress or the Colorado River.
  • The arts and music scene
    Nothing shapes Austin's culture as much as the arts and music scene. There's always something going on in town, and the festivals, in particular, attract audiences from all around the world. Get ready for great wedding reception entertainment.

  • Increasing diversity
    The Texas capital attracts people from different ethnicities and demographics. The blend of cultures gives the city new perspectives while also enriching its culture.

  • Gas is affordable
    A vehicle is a necessity for Austin natives but the cost of operating a car in the city is more affordable compared to elsewhere. This bodes well for saving gas as you plan and prepare for the wedding.

  • Great place to invest in property
    The city keeps growing and in turn, the property market in Austin is strengthened. As long as the influx of newcomers descends on the Texas capital, it's a sound decision to invest in rental properties. More opportunities means more companies available for events.

Disadvantages

  • Traffic is terrible
    Besides having to rely on a vehicle to get around in Austin, traffic can become unbearable at times. The growing population has a hand in it and it also puts a strain on the available infrastructure. Keep traffic woes in mind as you choose a wedding reception venue.

  • It's still a Texas city
    While the city has made strides in fostering diversity, the slogan "keep Austin weird" prevails. Liberal views are still not universally accepted particularly when it comes to same-gender marriages and gun ownership.

  • Not a sports-centric city
    Austin isn't what you’d describe as a sports fan's stomping ground because it doesn't have a pro sports team to speak of in the first place. The city still has its unique sports culture with plenty of recreational opportunities on offer.

  • Parking
    A busy city means parking can be tough anywhere that business is booming. If your Austin wedding reception venue is in a busy location, be aware of the parking complexities.

  • You'll need an air-conditioning system
    The weather is pleasant for almost the entire year but the rising summer temperatures can get unbearable. An air conditioning system is necessary to make the wedding reception conditions indoors more comfortable.

Famous Locations in Austin
